2006 Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia

Decanted at restaurant. Picked up a point at the 30min. mark and I think it picked up another point at the hour mark...unfortunately that was the last sip so can't confirm...but definitely a good sign for the potential of this wine when the last sip was the best!

Decanted 1 hr before tasting. Rich, dark fruit up front, medium to full bodied with velvety texture, ripe tannins and balanced acidity. Drinking well now, but should soften further with an additional year or two of cellaring.

Bien fait encore une fois. Bel équilibre et profondeur.
Pas mal de fruits rouge avec un peu de poivre, les tannins sont charnus et la finale assez longue.
Bien mais sera mieux dans quelques années.

Very nice ruby, intense and clear colour. Mostly forest fruits with wildberry dominating, tannins very well balanced and beautiful finish that lasted and lasted. Can easily age for another 3-4 years.

Decanted for about 3 hours. Tight and tannic still. Smells beautiful but the palate is very restrained. A little bit of red berry fruit, a lot of leather, maybe some chocolate. Wait on the rest of these.

Way more open than the last bottle. Rich cherry sangio fruit. Plenty of acidity. Still dark red. Layered and complex. Glad to see it is coming around.

Excellent, ready to drink Chianti. Leather and forest floor nose; bright, juicy fruit on the palate. It takes a few twists and turn that are fun in mid-palate, and it finishes in balance, clean with sustained fruit. Very enjoyable

As before. A great demonstration of how Sangiovese's darker side can be fresh and clean. Lovely and well worth the money.

Heard this way drinking better, so I tried a half-bottle... This has opened up a lot since I last tried it. Classic Chianti, with smells of vitamins and cherries. But this is still a bit too shrill right now for my preferences, a little tart and plenty of dry tannins. Good potential though. Not too far off from prime time, but I'll wait another 3-5 years before my next bottle.

Eric's B-day: second time tasting this wine. The first was in 2005 (thanks Fernando) - and this time thanks Eric! It has evolved magnificently - and is still a young wine. Nose of cherry, violets, earth and soy. Mid is ripe with black cherry and minirality dominating. Long savory finish. easily WOTN for me.

Lovely dark cherry. Tannins are mostly resolved. The acids have softened. The finish here is pretty long. Nice!

Taut, cherry stones, Mediterranean herbs; giving; in a good place. Cherry stones receding gracefully, a hint of blueberry and a bit of balsamico to add to the mix. Possibly drying a tad on the back end but it had a delightful licorice-porcini mushroom aftertaste, which elevated it from one of the also-rans. A super, delightfully resolved bottle of top drawer chianti.

Decanted two hours. Nose of bright sour cherry, earth, tar, and rose petals. On the palate, dense with sour cherry, and an earthy sensation. Lots of grip on a long finish. Needs time but really delicious already. Hold at least five years for prime drinking.

Big beautiful fruit with everything in balance. Big tannins and acidity. All that's needed is time. Enjoyable but way too soon. Wished i was drinking this 5 - 10 years from now. Will save the rest for a long time.

Burnt, nutty, orange nose. Very nice mouthfeel, stringing acidity on top of a medium body, no heavyness or stickyness. Hides the alcohol very well. Great with the right flood. Had it with macerated fresh strawberries and zabayone made with Marsala. Good combination.

APPEARANCE
Clear with some sediment, not overwhelming but noticeable at the end of the wine. Medium intensity ruby color.
NOSE
Clean, with medium(+) dried cherry, licorice, tobacco, mint and earth aromas, a fully developed and mature nose.
PALATE
Dry with high acidity and high tannin, medium(+) bodied with medium(+) alcohol (13.5% abv), medium(+) flavor intensity of dried cherry, orange zest, earth and mint, medium (+) finish with chewy tannins
CONCLUSIONS
Very good on its own, was outstanding with roasted game (boar rack), Ready to drink now, will not benefit from further aging, however it should remain in this window for a few more years based on the fruit intensity that remains, High-priced
